Where to Find Vintage Valentine Postcards
I bought all my postcards from paper and ephemera dealers at antique shows for about a dollar a piece. If you can’t find an antique show nearby, look online. Here’s a few good sources:
And if you’d like some vintage postcards to use in crafts, make copies. Remember, I never use the originals for crafting! You can even buy digital collections!
How to Display a Vintage Valentine Postcard Collection
Here’s one of my favorites. Some years I display them as singles on vintage metal frogs. Don’t cha just love that font?
This year I displayed my favorites on the same antique frame that I used for my Advent calendar. Which one is your favorite?
I bought these kiss cards through a dealer on Instagram.
And I think I found the Bridge Bingo at a flea market.
I also have a few postcards clothes-pinned to a string of crocheted yard for a garland on my mantle.
